It also represents a blond man, self-important, haughty, fearsome, deceitful; in a word, a bad man.

King of Diamonds—Upright.
This card, when used as a representative, denotes a very fair man, one with auburn hair, light blue eyes, and florid complexion, who, notwithstanding his hasty temper, will treasure his anger, long awaiting opportunities for revenge, or he is obstinate in his resolutions.
It moreover designates a military officer, and frequently one of fidelity to his country and its honor.
Still, it is most generally employed as the marriage card, for if it does not come out in an oracle wherein matrimony is the wish, the nuptials will be delayed or broken off.
Its synonymical signification would then be:
Alliance; reunion; attachment; vow; oath; intimacy; assemblage; junction; union; chain; peace; accord; harmony; good understanding; reconciliation.
King of Diamonds—Reversed.
This card signifies a country gentleman, in which capacity its synonyms are:
Country man; rustic; villager; peasant; farm laborer; cultivator; rural; agriculture.
Again, this card reversed, bears a further signification of a good and severe man, when its synonyms would be:
Indulgent severity; indulgence; compliance; condescension; complacency; tolerance; low descension.
When used as the marriage card, and coming out reversed, the king of diamonds signifies primarily difficulties and obstacles imposed in the way of entering upon or consummating the nuptial contract, and through inference vitiation of the married state, when its synonyms are:
Slavery; captivity; servitude; matrimonial ruptures; conjugal infidelity.

The sign of this suit is represented throughout as engraved with the pentigram, typifying the correspondence of the four elements in human nature and that by which they may be governed. In old Tarot packs this suit represented money. The consensus of divinatory meanings is on the side of change, as the cards do not deal especially with questions of money.
